After gaining a BSc(Hons) in Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh in 2005 I stayed at the University and completed my PhD in the analysis of composite materials under Dr. Tom Mackay in 2009.
In the summer of 2009 I moved back to my hometown of Inverness and took up work as a Mathematics lecturer at Inverness College UHI and researcher at the Epidemiology Research Unit of Scotlands Rural College (SRUC, previously the Scottish Agricultural College (SAC)).
I now split my time teaching and working with the SRUC and the RLI.
I spend my spare time with my wonderful wife and our wee dog, riding my bike and sliding lumps of granite along ice (otherwise known as curling!).
